Slated to be released prior to Christmas, it continues the White Mage Saga and follows The Last Oracle. As soon as I get it back from my editor I will set a firm launch date.

I am happy to announce that Elseerian, The Gathering, and Seven Days are currently avaialbe for presale purchase on and Amazon. Produced through Podium Publishing, the books will be narrated by Derek Perkins. Elseerian is expected to be live on Oct. 4th. I am excited about this announcement, but have to admit that I have limited experience with audio books. I think I listened to one when I was a kid, but it was on a cassette tape. (Insert age comment here). I would love to hear from you if you are an audio book fan, and if so, how you typically listen to books?

Illustrated Edition Update. Teaser Image!

photoI figured it was about time to release one of the images from the upcoming illustrated edition of Elseerian. This drawing of a memory orb is so incredible, and again I want to thank David Greismeyer for his incredible artwork. If all goes well I should be able to release this edition sometime in June. Extra points go to anyone who can name who is the owner of this orb!

Elseerian Artwork

I have received two of the twelve images that my artists is doing for the illustrated edition of Elseerian. With the level of detail in them, I can't wait to see the rest. Depending on his schedule I hope to upload this new edition by the end of April or early May. With so many talented artists to choose from it was difficult to pick just one, but I am happy to announce that David Griesmeyer will be doing the artwork on this project. As I get close to releasing it I will reveal an image or two for you to see. Send me a message if there is anything in particular that you would like portrayed in the artwork. I can't promise I will use it, but if enough people mention the same place or person I will certainly consider it!
